Allergies and Intolerances:
The main elements of this class could be adjusted to meet dietary requirments - some of the toppings may not be suitable however - please send me an email before booking if you have specific requirments and I will advise if we are able to accommodate you :)
As with all of my classes, please be reminded that I cannot guarantee any class to be totally Gluten or Dairy free - all preparation is undertaken in my own kitchen which handles wheat, dairy, nuts and eggs. If you have extreme allergies, it is NOT recommended to attend a cake class, and you do so at your own risk.
THIS CLASS WILL BE HELD IN MATFIELD VILLAGE HALL
A bit more about my Children's Classes:
As my children's classes are always held in the school holidays, my own 8yr old daughter attends and often helps me as I run the class. She likes to help out by handing out equipment and will even help me demonstrate sometimes - I believe this helps children to see how easy the tasks are to achieve and sets the tone of the class to be all about children and what they themselves are able to do!
My classes are ALWAYS really interactive - demonstrations are made of each individual step of each deisgn and lots of help given to those who need it.
Classes are suitable for all personalities of children - please don't worry if you have a quiet (or noisy!) child - they'll be accommodated and made to feel welcome and happy!
The classes are relaxed and fun - they are always one-off designs which means children may have to share specialist cutters and equipment and take turns - this is gently explained to them - please bear this in mind as a parent that sometimes things take a little longer - the class is timed and planned to allow for this - I hope you can enjoy the 1:1 time with your child and love the class :o)
IMPORTANT BOOKING INFORMATION:
This class has been created especially for older children (8+) and those who have attended a number of my classes and are confident of their abilities. Please consider your own child's capabilities before booking and contact me if you wish to check - my other classes are all suitable for younger students or those with little experience.
Basic concepts we would expect from students attending this class would be:
to be able to colour / mix sugarpaste
use cutters neatly
be able to take instruction on how to use a cutter and embosser
understand the need to handle sugarcraft gently
Parents / carers may be asked to help/ assigned a job (!) during the class as we will be producing larger quanitites of flowers and students may need a little assistance to help us stay on schedule :)
You do not need to book or pay for adults who are attending - just the children who will be taking part - a maximum of ONE adult per child will be permitted - our classes are busy and we cannot accommodate more than a 1:1 ratio.
A maximum of two children may attend with one parent/carer.
Children attending MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times, who will take full responsibility for the safety and welfare of their child(ren) for the duration of the class.
We reserve the right to refuse class attendance on arrival if you have not met these guidelines.
All Children's Classes include a non-refunable booking fee of £10.
Cancellations made less than one week prior to the class date will receive no refund.
Please ensure you are able to attend on the date and time of the class you book.
Due to the higher cost of running this class, no sibling discounts are available on this class.
